The Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar 2015 lists Canadian writing contests and book awards for the year 2015 arranged by deadline date. If you think that you'd ever have time to write and still know where to find all this information, collect it, and organize it, call me. Anyone who says they could compile all of this on their own has never tried to do it. Have a look at the Table of Contents for the 2014 Edition here. 2014 is now available as an ebook in both EPub and Kindle formats. The 2015 edition will be available in those formats as well.
Great gift for the writers on your list. It's the nicest encouragement a writer can receive, aside from an acceptance letter.
It is time to make sure your contest is listed in the 2015 edition. Use the link and forms on this submission page to get the details to us, and we'll try to spread the word. Send the email at any time of year; new information may be listed on the Updates page, so check from time to time. Make this year your writing contest gets noticed.

Due to post-operative illness, coupled with the sheer volume of work, the publishing schedule of the CWJ was too seriously behind to catch up. And it is too well-loved to disappear entirely. We appreciate the heart-felt calls and letters of support. Our main work in book publishing has pushed the CWJ aside, and with the price of postage, the CWJ is too expensive a proposition to ressurect as I had hoped. And it's taken quite a lot longer than I thought to realize it. It may be possible that an online version may become available. in the meantime, back issues can be had at our new store front at 50 Silver Street, Cobalt, ON
This website has many important sources for information and will remain online. For new writers in Canada, there are people and organizations out there to help. Our Writers Links page has a fair listing of many of them.

Our main work in book publishing has pushed the CWJ aside, and with the price of postage, the CWJ is too expensive a proposition to ressurect as I had hoped.
